May 2022 - May 2024


Participating Agencies

  • The Nature COnservancy

As living shoreline technologies continue to grow in popularity, there is continued need to evaluate existing projects to determine their long-term sustainability, and understand conditions conducive to their resilience. This project follows on previous work in an estuarine lake in Louisiana to evaluate the development of the reef community, and the impacts on the adjacent shoreline.
